Something strange has happened to me. All these years I have steered clear of anything shiny, shimmery or glittery on my lips. Mattes have been an all time favorite but things are slowly changing. Or maybe it is just a phase who knows but I see myself getting drawn towards shimmer lip colors! When I went to the L’Oreal counter to check out the new Infallible Mega Gloss range, I did not even look at the cream finish glosses! My eyes were stuck on the Dazzle range and I picked up a beautiful glittery dark purple berry shade called Gloss Me I’m Gorgeous. The Infallible Mega Gloss range is part of L’Oreal’s Cannes 2016 collection and priced at Rs 850 each (Please learn from them Revlon!)
The other day I was at Shopper’s Stop checking out some clothes when I noticed a new display at the Revlon counter. Yes, the Ultra HD Matte Liquid Lipcolors are here and available in 8 shades. I had a mild heart attack when the guy at the counter said that these are priced at Rs 1195. My immediate reaction was WTH! I’ll just pay Rs 250 more and get a MAC lipstick. But again, the packaging and the shades looked pretty, this was a new range and they were also giving a CCD voucher for 6 free capuccinos or tropical icebergs to be redeemed over a period of three months. So, I went ahead and bought the shade Passion and technically paid around Rs 400 for the lipstick (6 Tropical Icebergs cost Rs 804 :D)
The packaging is quite fancy. The lipstick comes in a red pouch with the product name printed on it. The tube itself has a flat round shape (the Chambor matte liquid lipstick packaging is very similar) and there is a sponge applicator inside. When you open the cap, you will be hit with a very strong and synthetic vanilla milkshake type smell so be aware if you have a sensitive nose. I wish Revlon toned down the smell a few notches because it is just way too strong. Thankfully, the smell subsides in a few minutes.
I spend five minutes out in the sun and I’ll come back with a horrible tan. VLCC sent me their Clear Tan Fruit Face Pack to try out and I’ve used it a few times to check whether it is effective or not. Read on to know what I think about this product.
Cucumbers help to cool the inflammatory response in your body. It also helps reduce unwanted inflammation, in part by inhibiting the activity of pro- inflammatory enzymes.Therefore, if you want a happy skin, then cucumber is your friend in need. VLCC Clear Tan Fruit Face Pack is enriched with Cucumber extract along with many other natural ingredients, which helps clear deep seated impurities and tan. Its skin lightening properties improves complexion over regular usage, leaving skin radiant, supple and tan free. This Face Pack is Paraben Free . Suitable for all skin types.
